I haven’t yet decided if Synchronic is a better film than The Endless. On one hand, the premise isn’t quite as complex and the story occasionally relies on some contrivances to push it along. On the other hand, it’s more emotionally engaging – thanks to well-realized characters and dialogue – with technical merits that are a considerable improvement. Either way, Benson & Moorhead have put together another intriguing sci-fi film that favors smarts over spectacle.
“The Banker” is based on true facts and I believe it truly shows how it went in the U.S. and how people were deprived of decent housing. Perhaps Bernard Garrett intended to act as a benefactor and pave the way for African Americans. Maybe he was doing it out of self-interest, too, simply to prove to himself and his father that you could succeed if you firmly believe in it. Anyway, “The Banker” is a great movie with a serious part and a very entertaining part. But as I mentioned earlier, it’s the cast that takes the whole thing to a higher level. A must-see for sure.
Endgame meets expectations without really ever exceeding them.
For the most part, the film is successful, mainly because Marvel has done a pretty masterful job of laying the groundwork during the past decade of MCU movies.
This film is loaded cast wise, it’s funny how this doesn’t seem to work, truly not enough time for everyone, when movies have this kind of cast someone always gets short changed.
As far as “The Night Before” goes, it’s more than just a comedy. The sentimental element is there that is traditional with the holiday season. Perhaps it doesn’t have those memorable lines or scenes that other holiday movies have.
